    Does anybody here know cameras or backs that can use non-perforated 35mm film?

    Seems like a good idea. Looks to me that about 1/3 of 35mm film is perfs or leader. That's a bunch of film.

    Some MF cameras can be made to shoot 35mm panoramic by placing foam on the top and bottom of a 35mm cartrige on the feed side, and rubber band guides on the ends of the take up spool, and perfs are not needed, in that case. Unloading must be done in complete darkness, as you must wind the film back in to the cartrige by hand.

    How about converting something like the Graflex 70mm back? Put a guide on both the take up spool and the feed spool.
